Reviewer: Harry Wilson - - September 5, 2016
Subject: Producer Harry Alan Towers

Hello, Kennedy Film & TV. Short answer: I believe British, for syndication around the world.

On otrrpedia.net, it states that these ran in the US in 1952-53, on NBC. I looked up the producer, Harry Alan Towers, and in that era he worked for a couple of British producers of syndicated radio shows, 'Lang-Worth' and his own 'Towers Of London', which he formed in 1946.

In the early 50s, he produced such radio shows as 'The Adventures Of Harry Lime' (known in the US as 'The Lives Of Harry Lime') and 'The Black Museum'. Both of those shows were produced in Britain, for syndication around the world, so I would assume that the same went for 'The Scarlet Pimpernel'.

If you read his short blurb on Wikipedia, he sounds like a rather unsavoury 'Harry Lime' character himself (scroll down to 'Vice Activities').

Subject: Who Made These
I am curious as to who produced and broadcast the series? it says it is "British" but I do not find any listing with BBC and I do not know any other station that would broadcast or make these in the 50s?

Subject: Marius Goring Excellent in "The Scarlet Pimpernel"
What a pleasure to hear Marius Goring again in "The Scarlet Pimpernel." They were then, probably, either just imported from England or were reruns in this country. The listener, in order to appreciate this program, should have some knowledge of the French Revolution (late 1700's) and the efforts of Englishmen to save those in France (and the European continent)from being killed by their countrymen. Marius Goring, in England, plays an unlikely individual who no one would suspect would be capable of taking on the role of rescuing potential Frenchmen and women facing having their heads separated from their bodies. This program requires the full attention of the listener to follow the plot lines.
